Driving between LA and San Fran, we stopped in at San Simeon for an overnight stay. Although we didn’t have a booking we were given a great rate on a twin double room and even given ocean views. The resort is right on the beach so the views are quite spectacular, especially at sunset.
Staff were extremely helpful and pointed out local petrol stations and supermarkets without us having to ask. They also suggested lots of great stops for us to make on the way to San Fran and also told us how to book in tours of nearby Hearst Castle.
Room was great, extremely spacious with great sized bathroom including many complimentary cosmetics. Beds were extremely comfortable.
The restaurant next door is also great, the provided complimentary samples of some menu items.
Overall the stay was fantastic, the only downside being we couldn’t stay longer.
